FluMist Becomes Sponsor of Women's Professional Soccer

As part of the multi-faceted campaign, FluMist has become an official sponsor of WPS, the world's premier women's professional soccer league, working with real-life soccer moms and the league to reach families during flu vaccination season, including back-to-school visits.
"Our 'Don't Play with the Flu' efforts are directed toward parents to help them understand the importance of annual influenza vaccination and reminds them not to wait to put up a defense against the flu, particularly with seasonal vaccine becoming available during the summer," said Peter Greenleaf, MedImmune's Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Corporate Development & Strategy. "We're proud to partner with the WPS in its inaugural season to bring this fun, educational and interactive campaign to the families across America."
